  1. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  2. A Reconfigurable Machining Center for Depot Productivity Enhancement

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161019

    Current depot-level manufacturing systems are not responsive to changing requirements and flexible specifications. The serial arrangement of individual work cells results in a lengthy timeline to complete the critically-needed part; thus, critical assets

  3. Optical System for High-Speed 3D Velocimetry

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161071

    Unsteady processes, such as vortex shedding and local extinction, play a key role in augmentor stability.These processes occur on fast timescales, and can involve complex, three-dimensional (3D) structures.To fully elucidate unsteady processes, such as flame ignition and blowout, fast diagnostics that can provide information over a 3D volume are needed.In this research program, we are developing a ...

  4. HVPE-Based Gallium Oxide Homoepitaxial Structures for RF and Power Switching Devices

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF171018

    Monoclinic -Ga2O3 has recently emerged as a promising material for ultrawide bandgap electronics for next-generation high voltage lateral and vertical power switching devices, thanks to its large bandgap (4.9eV), high critical breakdown field (8MV

  5. Atmospheric Plasma Surface Activation of High Strength Steels for Electroplating

    SBC: Atmospheric Plasma Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF171003

    The current surface activation process used to activate the surface of landing gear parts uses an aggressive grit blasting technique prior to electroplating. This technique is effective, but requires large amounts of blast media, requires a pre-cleaned surface and the process removes up to 0.1mils of substrate, much more than necessary. There is an urgent need for a process that can easily and eff ...

  6. Simplified Aero Model Development and Validation Environment

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: AF161042

    Classical approaches to aircrew training are characterized by several shortcomings, including high costs and lack of realism. These issues have motivated the desire to advance the state-of-the-art in virtual aerial refueling training environments. Such an advance has the potential to provide a cost-effective way of introducing a more realistic environment in performing repetition training. A vi ...

  9. LWIR Fiber Bundle for Thermal Imaging in Gas Turbine Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF17AT016

    Improved temperature measurements of thermal barrier coating (TBC) components are needed for gas turbine research and development.Imaging pyrometry systems are preferred because they are non-contact and can measure the complex spatial temperature distribution on components.Measurement in the long-wave infrared (LWIR) band is required for accurate temperature measurements of modern TBCs.Fiber coupl ...
